WASHINGTON - The Presidential Inauguration Committee (PIC)on Monday announced "Parade Across America" for Wednesday, Jan.20, 2021. According to the PIC, the inaugural parade will feature diverse, dynamic performances in communities in all 56 states and territories, celebrate America's heroes, and highlight the diversity, heritage, and resilience of the country.
One of those included in the virtual parade is Nathan Apodaca, or more commonly known as "Doggface" from Idaho Falls, Idaho. Apodaca, who is half Arapaho from the Wind River Indian Reservation (WY) went viral in the fall of 2020 when he posted a video of himself lip-syncing to Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" while long-boarding and chugging Ocean Spray on a highway entrance after his truck broke down on his way to work at a nearby potato factory.
"I chose to participate in representing peace," said Nathan Apodaca to Native News Online. "I'm not on anyone's 'side' and we, as a nation, have suffered a lot of hate and unfortunate events and I hope to bring some good vibes to 2021."
